A man was shot in the buttocks over an argument about a parking spot in the Bronx early Friday morning, police said.

The 32-year-old man was standing outside his parked car on Plimpton Avenue between West 169th and West 170th streets in Highbridge at about 12:15 a.m.

A red sedan drove up, and the driver asked the man to move his car, but he refused, cops said. The driver circled around the block, returned to the spot and shot the 32-year-old man once in the buttocks, according to police.
